coming clinton/biden contest. >> i'm neutral even though i'm sitting down with hillary clinton. >> joe biden is telling everything who will listen that he won't be too old in 2016. by sitting there alongside the secretary of state and saying such complimentary things. i think he is sending a message. i also like this person. those of you who are planning a race, leave me out of this. it's between those two. >> why is "60 minutes" the go-to program for the white house and i've lost count of how many times he sat down. >> started with bill and hillary clinton back in '92. you know -- >> problems in our marriage. >> for one thing. back then "60 minutes" was the highest rated, it still is of the magazine shows. that's where you go. just like "nightline" with tod koppel used to be the national confessional and now it's oprah. >> do you think, you know, we saw the split you talked about where hillary clinton sometimes emotional testimony on benghazi was ripped on fox, defended on msnbc, but do you think 2016 will decide this joint interview on "60 minutes" is part of an effort to give her a

gun control is now a white house campaign-style effort and vice president joe biden held a social media town hall, a google hangout to rally support. >> make your voices heard. this outfit, this town listens when people rise up and speak. >> reporter: the white house and feinstein know their biggest hurdle is convincing fellow democrats from gun right states to support gun control. >> the message to democrats is, see what your silence does? there will be more of these. >> reporter: no surprise, wolf, saying that they don't like this proposed ban. feinstein is, once again, focused on curtailing the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing the mental health system. we are confident congress will deny the wrong-headed approach. >> it's not just republicans who are going to be opposed to what senator feinstein is proposing. a whole lot of democrats are going to be nervous about it as well. >> reporter: precisely. that's what senator feinstein was saying there in the piece, that her message to those fellow democrats, which they really are her first target, if you will, i

to vie for the latino votes? >> first of all i know joe biden and i think he's on campaign mode already. we saw a joe biden sprinting through the parade route yesterday. i think he was trying to show us he's a very spry, fit, 70-year-old who will be in very good shape in four years. he became the first vice president to get sworn in by ay ays a latina justice. first vice president to do that. it's a matter of time before we hear joe biden singing or in spanish or reciting irish poetry in spanish because i think joe biden is a very smart politician. realizes how important the latino vote was to this victory. and i think he's prepping himself for a 2016 run. look, he said it at the latina ball the head of the new pack, a hispanic democrat super pac founded and that includes eva longoria and others said those people have been over his house so many times the last three daze they're probably tired of seeing him. i don't think it's coincidence. >> one day we'll take a break and then start and start covering 2016. anna, van, good to see you. >> are you kidding? we've been in 2016 mode for two

a joe biden. take a look. >> i'm proud to be president of the united states but i'm prouder to be -- >> a few seconds later he corrected himself and a short time ago he spoke. the president's subject was hair. specifically michelle obama's new bangs. >> first of all, i love michelle obama and to address the most significant event of this weekend, i love her bangs. she looks good. she always looks good. >> president obama just earlier tonight. some politics ahead looking to tomorrow and the next four years. republican consultants joining us. friend and advisor of president obama. paul, you wrote an article today. you said the president should say all the right things in his speech tomorrow about coming together and about unity and go out and be ruthless. >> yes. that is the lesson of lincoln. in the first inaugural he talked about appealing to the better angels of our nature and then we went to war. he tried. president obama has tried. i think presidents have to change, try to change the culture in which they are placed. in this case, this division that we have in the country

exception to him wanting to apparently categorize as joe biden who jumped in before him about genuine equality for anyone who's gay and that involves if they want to get married in america, they want to get married. >> when the president says half the things he says, i'm not sure what he means by them. for me to characterize cryptic remarks in an inaugural address. if you're asking me how i feel i think that america has as its goal equality and also fairness. when you ask people, jake tapper, and welcome to cnn, jake, had those poll numbers about do you want your member of congress to vote for president obama's efforts to reduce gun violence, you get one answer. when you ask do you want the government to ban certain things, you get quite another answer. and that's because we have a sense of not just of equality in the country but fairness. >> you've been laughing here. what's amusing here? >> what's amusing to me is we're making such a big deal about it. we all live our lives, right? i think on a day-to-day basis, we accept the people around us. we have to go to work, we have to shop,

the 2016 group a lot. if you're joe biden, think about a run for the presidency and you see that the president for the first time for the first time with someone other than his wife is sitting down for a chat on tv, what do you think that says about what the president is thinking about 2016? >> i'm not as concerned with that as i am with what secretary clinton is doing with 2016. >> r she has a total knowledge of all of the -- >> you want her to run. >> i would love it if she were to run. >> when we return, the grand old party tries to find a new way forward, and later, making a penny count. but when i started losing energy and became moody... that's when i had an honest conversation with my doctor. we discussed all the symptoms... then he gave me some blood tests. showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number -- not just me.

, the white house making a big push to ban assault weapons. joe biden will be in richmond, virginia, to make the case for a ban, and the president also said to hit the road to promote the plan in a google plus hangout yesterday, the vice president said this about gun safety yesterday. >> in california, everyone talks about the big earthquake or some terrible natural disaster as last line of defense. what do you say to those? >> i would say guess what? a shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double-barrel shotgun than assault weapons in somebody's hands who doesn't know how to use it. even somebody who does know how to use it you know. it's harder to use an assault weapon than a shotgun. you want to keep somebody safe, buy some shotgun shells. >> and dianne feinstein has introduced a bill to ban assault rifles, including the ar- 15, the type used to kill the children in newtown. >> feinstein made her announcement in dramatic fashion. she had on hand the assault weapon and a lot of survivors of gun violence. it would prohibit the sale, manufacturer, transport, and importation of more than 150 s
, coming out of a heated primary. setting up hilary clinton four years from now? joe biden, hillary clinton. who will he endorse? >> people say thank you all the time, don't sit down and do a rare interview on "60 minutes. on ." >> i thought it was a good sendoff for hillary clinton. the last time i saw president obama do a joint interview, he was with michelle obama last time i saw hillary do a joint interview, she was with bill. >> what am i missing? >> not sure they are cynical. >> taking it at face value. the face value this is extraordinary. a president doesn't do a sit-down interview with a member of the cabinet. >> i think it helped her coming out of the benghazi hearings, number one. number two, hillary touched on something that i think people kind of laughed you off, the spouses take it harder, and that is a direct reference to bill clinton. bill came up. >> that's what she said. >> having been a spouse and a candidate, i think spouses take it much harder. you know, in a way, just as the president said, we're out there and responding minute by minute. and you don't have time to sit
. perhaps of it a not so subtle message to his vp, joe biden, that maybe you shouldn't run. if it is between clinton and yourself, my endorsement, my direction for the country will be to vote for hillary clinton, not you. i saw both those things in the interview. i didn't see very much policy talk. it was a love fest. i think it was important that the last thing on tape of those two next to each other wasn't the debates that we saw earlier, but actually this love fest. >> well, speaking of love fests -- and, will cain, i'm sure you'll agree with me. during the benghazi hearings, democrat after democrat after democrat expressed their love for hillary clinton. is this sort of a well thought-out plan on the democratic side to prepare the way for 2016? >> well, as he's certainly suggesting, that, and i think it's hard to rebut the end message people are gleaning from this. it's interesting you bring up benghazi. because there's really no loser, there's no risk in this interview. president obama and hillary clinton would do this because it reflects well on both of them. they're both negotiating,
of a joe biden. >> i'm proud to be president of the united states. but i'm prouder to be -- >> a few seconds ago he corrected himself. a few minutes ago, he and his wife and the president and the first lady all spoke at a celebration. the subject was hair, specifically michelle obama's new bangs. >> first of all, i love michelle obama. and to address the most significant event of this weekend, i love her bangs. she looks good. she always looks good. >> president obama just earlier tonight. raw politics looking ahead to tomorrow and, of course, looking ahead at the next four years, we have a team of professionals here, who have seen a lot of presidential history being made. republican consultant margaret hoover joining us, ari fleischer, paul begala and van jon jones. paul, you wrote an article in "the daily beast" i think it was today, you basically said, the president should say all the right things in his speech tomorrow about coming together and unity, and then he should go out and be ruthless? >> yes, yes. he famously hosted steven spielberg and daniel day-lewis and the stars beh
, i agree with joe biden. i don't understand why you can't use a regular rifle, a regular pistol or regular handgun to defend yourself. why do you need these mass killing machines? >> here is the thing, piers, the fact this is the most popular rifle in the united states. there's 3 million people, as you know well, who own these. and they are quote/unquote, called assault weapons, however, the vast majority of law-abiding citizens who own them do not consider them for the purpose of assault but rather hunting. >> no one uses it for hunting. every hunting told me if you can't get them down in three shots, you're not a hunter, and if you hit them with 100 shots, you have destroyed the animal. that's not hunting. >> let me make the point really fast. ar-15s in virginia are actually not allowed to be used to hunt deer because they don't get the job done. >> right. >> they don't essentially kill deer right away. >> the only animal is a rabbit in virginia with an ar-15. >> do you ladies agree with automatic weapons being banned? >> that's not the issue at hand right now because they are
